I've really enjoyed PLDI in 2016. This was my second time being a volunteer @ PLDI and I had a great time again. This time I have attended the PLMW for the first time too. While the talks about academic life ups and downs were ok, I have really enjoyed the talks about research topics from established researchers. These provided great overview of PL topics I was not intimately familiar with and helped me understand the more detailed talks in the main research track, which make the conference even more rewarding.
